Pistol Ammo
« on: February 24, 2009, 06:18:51 PM »
I went to two Walmarts today trying to find 9mm and 45ACP. Both were sold out, awaiting delivery from the warehouse. I ordered from Cabelas and it is backordered until March.

What is going on with ammo?

There's a thread on availability--or unavailability--of bulk ammo:

Heck, I ordered a reloading setup a while back and it is still not in stock.

I am headed to the big city (Houston) today, so I will check at Academy.
Thanks

One place I have found that tends to be a good source is http://www.ammoman.com/

They still are sold out on a lot of stuff but if you get on their mailing list they will let you know when it comes in.

The same thing that's been going on. Two wars that get priority and an increase in the prices of reloading materials to boot. The fact that both shooters and shooter suppliers saw the need for stocking up and price gouging (respectively) because of this stocking up and threat to business certainly didn't help.

Well I found 400 rounds of 45acp at Academy. They were almost out. They were out of 9mm. It is scary seeing all the shelfs empty. My ammo cans are full for now. Hopefully it will be enough for the future.

I wish I'd gotten more on the weapon/ammo ball when I had two jobs and extra money. Now I'm looking at no job and needing to find cash for weapons at a 250% or mor price hike and limited ammo stocks. Envious.
